Bio Data | Oluwatoba Obaniyi
Oluwatoba Obaniyi, fondly called “Toba” began his web hosting career in 2010 building websites as a web developer during his NYSC days. Little did he know that it will become a huge part of his life.
He teamed up with Opeyemi Awoyemi that same year to manage ennovateNIGERIA and eventually WhoGoHost as the CEO. With little or no management experience he rose up to the challenge of managing a startup company.
He is also a member of the Nigerian Internet Registrars Association. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University finishing in the top 5 percentile of his class in 2008.
He is a self taught web developer, server manager and online customer service specialist.
Toba puts everything into what he believes in and detest being second best. He has clearly experienced the impacts of being “nearly” accurate.
This is the very success story behind Whogohost as he has surrounded himself with a like-minded team that is as passionate as he is about the business.
He has been able to grow the indigenous web hosting provider from a small startup into the world class thriving enterprise and currently the largest hosting provider in Nigeria.
Toba has worked tirelessly to see that Whogohost has grown from the small business it was to what it is today.
In addition to partnering with other IT firms, Whogohost has also acquired some hosting companies.
Toba is also passionate about giving back and this is evident in how he has led the Whogohost Team in giving out free trainings to students on website development and sponsorships of several events like the Tedx Covenant university event, The edge series, My business day apprentice etc.
He is happily married to his beautiful wife Yetunde… dedicated, disciplined, focused and always ready to learn something new. He loves listening to music, playing computer games and watching animes.
